The Muse

Recently I read an article by Amit Varma where he talks about Electric Feather – an anthology of erotic fiction. He was looking for people to write stories for Electric Feather 2, and I thought why not give it a shot? But damn, it’s difficult! I was able to write just a few words before I gave up the pursuit to write it. Posting those few words here, that I had penned, as a 55.


He kept pacing the room.
His wife asked, “What’s wrong?”

He answered, “I have a deadline to meet and I lack inspiration. I need to write an erotic fiction by tomorrow morning and the words have dried up.”
“Oh, is that it! Let me help you,” and she seduced him.

Stimulated, he met the deadline.

    Hahha 🙂

    I’ve read Electric Feather. There were 8-10 stories and I really liked a just couple of them. So stories are being scouted for 2 ? Interesting!
